CAMARADA PRESENTS TANGO TRIBUTE TO ASTOR PIAZZOLLA: MARIA DE BUENOS AIRES & THE FOUR SEASONS OF TANGO
February 27, 2020 · 7:30 PM
The JAI @ The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center
Calling all romantics—come share in Camarada’s passion for tango music and dance! Camarada pays tribute to the music of the great Astor Piazzolla, who referred to his music as Nuevo tango, an avant-garde version of Buenos Aires’ most popular dance form. Piazzolla fused classical, jazz, and tango into a distinctive musical idiom that has become his own genre. Join us for this performance of Piazzolla’s most celebrated works: The Four Seasons of Tango and a premiere of the instrumental suite Maria de Buenos Aires, both arranged by Grammy-award winning tango master, Raul Jaurena.
